Tottenham Hotspur have had their issues at right-back in 2018/19, but a solution is now available for them this summer.
As reported by UOL Esporte, Paris Saint-Germain star Dani Alves has turned down a contract extension at the Parc des Princes and is set to become a free agent.
The Brazilian has enjoyed a trophy-laden couple of years with then French giants, but appears to be eyeing a new challenge.
Apparently Alves wanted a two-year deal, but PSG only offered a one-year extension.
The 36-year-old evidently isn’t thinking about retirement just yet, with UOL claming he is eyeing up a move to the Premier League – perhaps his passion for football should force Tottenham to take note this summer.
Despite Alves’ advancing years, he could make for shrewd business by a top club this summer.
The former Barcelona ace doesn’t really play like a 36-year-old and has impressive fitness which allows him to still bomb up and down the right flank.
Alves has a superb winning mentality and could be great for Spurs’ dressing room – so far in his career, he has won an astonishing 42 trophies (via The Guardian).
Tottenham appear ready to sell Kieran Trippier this summer, and Serge Aurier has not fully convinced during his time in north London.
Alves could therefore be a super free signing and come in as a squad player, with Spurs arguably needing players who have experienced winning trophies.
